Channel 4's reality series The Circle is coming back soon – really soon, in fact, as we now have an official launch date.

The second series is getting a bit of an overhaul as Emma Willis steps in as host, and you won't have to wait long to see her and a new batch of contestants in action.

Channel 4 has revealed the show will return on Tuesday, September 24 – so mark your calendars, folks.

The show sees a number of contestants all live in the same apartment building, though they can only interact through a social media app – meaning they can either be themselves or pose as a completely different person.

The Circle recently unveiled its second series trailer, which sees Emma herself transform into a number of different personalities.

The presenter takes over hosting duties for the new series, and will get more involved as she'll pop up for a live episode each week featuring interactive elements.

Emma recently chatted to Digital Spy about joining the show, admitting she missed out on the first series last year because she was busy.

"I came to it late because it was on at the same time as Big Brother, obviously, so I was not watching it while it was on," she said.

"I was obviously intrigued because it was up against us. So I watched it afterwards. And it was just one of those things where you kind of go, 'I'm going to watch another one. I might watch another one. Shit, I'm in, it's got me!'"

The Circle returns to Channel 4 on September 24.
